France is not a very happy country any more, mainly because it's too hard to find a job. If you make an honest living, you pay high taxes. Heaps of people there live off other people's taxes, either by having cushy government jobs, or living on welfare. Wine drinking is way down, and divorce is way up. Houses in the French countryside are still cheap, the supermarket food is good, the summer is long and nice. So a lot of foreigners, including many British, have vacation homes in France. These foreigners can have a good time. The locals often seem to be losing it. France is a lot like New Zealand, great to visit, not so great a place to work and pay taxes.

Stress is one of the biggest thieves of love making. If times are tough people don't always feel in the mood.

It sound like the US except the nice long summer part. Soon more couples would have sex misery because a lot of people here even the well off ones are losing their means of income.
